Steven Universe to Premiere in November

Steven Universe was inspired by Rebecca Sugar’s own brother, also named Steven. The cartoon looks fun and smart, and not at all stereotypical. Favorite quote from the promo? “If every pork chop were perfect, we wouldn’t have hot dogs.”

Theres a better version of this now called: HQ Steven Universe With Rebecca Sugar. Sorry this is so low-res.It is from the Cartoon Network Steven Universe site, and as soon as I have a better version I will post an HQ update. But this is the real story of Steven Universe from its creator, Rebecca Sugar. We can hardly wait for you to see the first two episodes, airing November 4.

If you want to know more about why characters are redesigned, look at this link (but beware it is industry talk!)
